Fox News spent a whole Sunday segment on the legality of President Obama’s killing of Al Awlaki, an American citizen. Bill Kristol chuckled condescendingly and said that no candidate except for Ron Paul is complaining about it and therefore it is a non-issue. Kristol implied that the killing was legal and morally justified. Everyone else on the panel agreed. No one explained why they spent a whole segment talking about something that was supposed to be a non-issue.
But it turns out that Bill Kristol was wrong. Herman Cain was asked about the killing of Al Awlaki several months ago and stated clearly that it was wrong and unconstitutional. I am posting the Youtube of the Herman Cain interview below for you to see for yourself.
So get this straight. President Obama must get a federal judge to sign a warrant before he can listen in on the telephone conversations of an American citizen but he can kill an American citizen without it. He just need support from the American news media.
This is about as far from the U. S. Constitution and Bill of Rights as one can get. This is running the country by the news media and a popular leader.
Ron Paul made it very clear today that he condemns what Al Awlaki did and what he stands for. He voted to go into Afghanistan and to hunt down Osama Bin Laden. But he pointed out that even with Timothy McVeigh, we brought him to trial and he was convicted by a jury and sentenced by a judge. And he was executed. He was not killed on an order of the president.
During the Nuremberg Trials the prosecution took great pains to show how Nazi Germany started its fall into the abyss. A great amount of time was taken to explain how gullible the German people were to accept Hitler’s actions during the Blood Purge when Ernst Rohm and other SA leaders were summarily killed without trial. This should have been a warning, the court was told. Instead it was applauded by the population. After all, the men that Hitler had killed were bad men.
One of the four major counts against the Nuremberg defendants was the waging of an aggressive (preemptive) war. It is now our American foreign policy.
We are at an interesting point in our history. It is worth a discussion before we race ahead.

The conventional wisdom is that Jon Huntsman, former governor of Utah and presidential candidate, is being played by his political handlers. According to this narrative, they are taking the billionaire for the biggest paycheck of their lives. They are telling him that he can bypass Iowa, play to the middle and the media, like John McCain did in 2008, pull an upset in New Hampshire and ride his dark horse to the nomination. This presupposes that the billionaire has a gargantuan ego, is a political dolt and that his handlers are superhuman con men. Having watched Huntsman in action during these debates and knowing some of his paid handlers, none of the three seem plausible to me.
So what is Jon Huntsman trying to do? If he can’t win why is he in this presidential race? And why were NBC executives so willing to help him in the last Republican debate, making sure their producers and directors got the message “puff Huntsman” signaling the anchors to keep going to him again and again with softball questions? Why should a contender who is running dead last in the polls get such fawning attention and respect from NBC, of all places?
Governor Huntsman announced for president last June 21, with poise and class, acting oblivious to the anti-Mormon bias in the GOP ranks in Iowa and the South. Hadn’t he learned anything watching Mitt Romney suffer through that process in the last cycle? Was he really going to split the Mormon vote in Nevada and ruin Romney’s legitimate chances there? And then he dissed his own religion. Huh? What serious candidate knocks his own base? And yet, unperturbed, Huntsman has remained suntanned and relaxed throughout the process, ignoring the coming losses with a transcendent confidence.
Nothing that has happened so far should be feeding that confidence. The governor garnered only 69 votes in the Iowa Straw Poll. Write-in candidates not even on the ballot got more votes than Huntsman. He was the butt of Jon Stewart jokes. He is, even now, running at 2% in some Republican presidential preference polls. Dead last among the contenders. He never fails to tell his GOP audiences that he believes in climate change, which won him kudos yesterday from Al Gore. He loves telling evangelical Christian audiences in Iowa and South Carolina that he believes in evolution. In fact, he has brought the subject up, unsolicited, in the last two national debates. It seems that Huntsman has some monkey business on the brain.
So what is going on?
Here is the answer my friends, Jon Huntsman is running for a cabinet position in Barack Obama’s second term as president. He will let his GOP rivals pile on. He will let the GOP audiences sneer. He will remain the gentleman, above the mean spirited debate around him. And he will bask in the glory afforded him by an adoring mainstream media, who favors Obama’s re-election anyway. And when duly re-elected Barack Obama, declared by the Sienna Institute to be the 15th greatest president of all time, will grandly announce to the American people, “I am going to keep my promise, I am going to do everything I can to unite this country, even to the point of naming a Republican to my cabinet” he will call for Jon Huntsman. Obama will be shown reaching all the way across the aisle to the GOP to pick one of their own presidential contenders as his new Secretary of Commerce. Only he really won’t have to reach very far to get his man. And Huntsman is obviously not “contending” for the nomination. The media, with a straight face, will say “what a bipartisan, statesman-like gesture by our dear president.”
Jon Huntsman has all the credentials to be in an Obama cabinet. He is a second generation billionaire who knows how to be play the game. He was Ambassador to Singapore for George Herbert Walker Bush and Ambassador to China for Barack Obama. And that means he understands well that former Ambassadors, from time immemorial, especially when they are wealthy, are expected to pay for their position after the president leaves office. After all, an ambassador keeps his title for life. It is the closest thing we have to royalty in America. And if the president should die, the ambassador should be very generous to his family. It is like a Lord and his King. A former president, for example, should be able to count on the use of the former ambassador’s corporate jet, or the box seats at a favorite sporting event, or a plush position on the board of directors of one of the billionaire’s companies.
Huntsman must play this game especially well, since he has been “knighted” by both Republican and Democrat administrations. What can he do for an encore? Surely he does not want another Ambassadorship.
You can bet that you won’t hear Jon Hunstman echoing Ron Paul, Michelle Bachman and Rick Perry, calling for an audit of the Federal Reserve. His companies may need some of those billions, beyond the reach of the ordinary folks.
And for those who feel sorry for a very eloquent and intelligent man, who seems to have fallen way behind in the presidential race? Well, save your pity for another. Jon Huntsman is actually very far ahead in the race to be in President Obama’s next cabinet. Only Hillary Clinton and Leon Panetta are ahead of him. And there is a danger of getting too far out front, something that Clinton and Panetta know well and Huntsman should remember. So we should hear him step it up a bit with a little more partisan language. If he is going to be of any use for Obama he has to at least try to sound like a Republican.
It is all part of his plan. The only thing that can go wrong now? Well, one of the Republicans might win.

Wow. President Obama and the question: Is he “Deserving of Darts”? Broad subject…right? We have never “awarded” Barack Obama this dubious GiN distinction before for one simple reason: once we’d get going, we’d be hard pressed to stop. The GiN Joint doesn’t have that many darts on the premises…in fact, we’d probably create a national dart shortage. The content of Thursday’s speech rolling out “The American Jobs Act”, provided a target-rich environment to be sure, but I honestly didn’t catch every word. I was frequently talking to my TV…frequently asking rhetorical questions of the President on the screen…frequently wondering aloud at the dizzy Democrats who applauded so many times…frequently expressing frustration about past Republican responses to similar policies. I didn’t start talking to the TV right away. It’s been a while since anything the President has said provoked that reaction from me. When I realized I was listening to practically the same speech I’d heard too many times in January and February 2009, realized I was listening to even more obviously absurd version of the February 2009 Stimulus push, I confess, I really lost my temper. It’s very important to understand that the February 2009 Stimulus is “the gift that keeps on giving”. Over two and a half years after that monstrosity’s passage, the facts about its damage to the economy, irresponsible spending, fueling of left-wing agendas, paybacks to political cronies, and its whitewash over state and local budgetary problems are still coming to light. Perhaps the most recent bit of information readers will recall involves the diversity manuals purchased by Omaha Public Schools. Our article “$130k for School Diversity Manuals Just the Tip of the Stimulus Iceberg” exposed much greater amounts of damaging spending than $130,000, and that article focused only on the Stimulus’ education spending. Ironically, we just referenced that article on Wednesday when we provided a visual example of such waste. And of course, we’ve written about the Stimulus bill many times before. Although I will not take the time to re-hash all of its problems here ( just those of which we are aware, anyway), I will point out two articles we’ve written because the ideas they include are very important and worth repeating:
- In July, we published “OF COURSE the Stimulus is Killing Jobs and Unemployment is Up” in which we highlighted an analysis by White House economists which included numbers that proved the February 2009 Stimulus was actually killing jobs.
- In March, we published “The State of Nebraska Has YOUR Medical Records: Next Up…the Feds“, in which we explained that the February 2009 Stimulus was actually historic health care legislation because it contained buried provisions to set up an entire medical records infrastructure, through government, and was a set up for the health care “reform”.
How many jobs would it have cost us if past Congresses decided not to support the basic research that led to the Internet and the computer chip? What kind of country would this be if this Chamber had voted down Social Security or Medicare just because it violated some rigid idea about what government could or could not do? How many Americans would have suffered as a result? (emphasis added)The embedded video, below, is the full speech. The President made the remarks above beginning at approximately 28 minutes, 25 seconds. Wow. What he is talking about? Let’s consult the experts. Of course, we need the appropriate music as we ponder and write down our answer: I know! I know! scribble scribble scribble scribble For all of those who wrote down the correct answer: I suppose we could call the Constitution “rigid” IF we would consider the idea that we should adhere to the rule of law rigid1. What President Obama advocated in his speech generally and alluded to in his amazing “rigid” remark should not be misinterpreted as ignorance. As I wrote for A New America:
“A philosophy of positive rights epitomizes the Obama Administration. Barack Obama knows the Constitution, he just doesn’t agree with it.“To illustrate that point, I chose to include a clip from the following 2001 Chicago Public Radio interview: So let’s discard the facade. Re-read the President’s statement with the word Constitution substituted in the appropriate place:
What kind of country would this be if this Chamber had voted down Social Security or Medicare just because it violated the Constitution?Uh… Hmm… I don’t know – A financially solvent country? Peopled with citizens who assumed responsibility for themselves and their extended family members instead of lying to themselves that they can pay less into a system than they take out of it2 ? Oh, and maybe we’d have a country which wouldn’t keep telling people it will “keep its promises” when promises to someone will be broken, it’s just a matter of when and to whom.
- We suspect that “rigid” is the opposite of “living” regarding constitutional philosophy. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia has provided some of the best articulations available in contemporary times regarding constitutional originalism the many problems with a “living constitution”. ↩
- According to the analysis referenced in the National Review article to which we linked, an example of an American couple is given that shows a 25% “return” on Social Security and Medicare payroll deductions. ↩

‘Everyone’s God and if we don’t wake up to that there’s going to be no weather because our polar caps are melting because we’re doing bad things to the atmosphere…” — Charles Manson, 2011
Every now and then, even a blind squirrel finds a nut. Buried in an article published in the UK’s Daily Mail online edition is an article originally titled: “Killer Breaks 20 year Silence on 40th anniversary of gruesome Sharon Tate murders”. Immediately the words “HELTER SKELTER” jump to mind with the image of a swastika carved into the forehead of Charles Manson. But, in the opening paragraphs there is something missed by almost everyone…in the midst of ole Charlie’s ramblings is the evidence. Evidence so solid that it will save and eventually usher in a renewal of free market principles around the world.
For decades now the likes of Albert ”Alfonse Corleone” Gore, William “Cigar-Boy” Clinton, Julia “Carbon-Tax” Gillard, and Barack “Barry” Obama have told us their prophecies, based on “science”, relative to the harm we humans were causing our fragile planet. Their “science” has recently been discovered to be….hmmmm…wanting facts. Despite this “temporary” set-back, the Climate Change Coup Pack (CCCP) charges ahead with administrative efforts (not legislative, because the peasants are growing wise) at curbing that which most life on earth either exhales or uses as fuel to produce that which most life inhales.
Many skeptics of anthropogenic climate change spend a great deal of time, resources, and effort at discovering, analyzing, compiling, and presenting PROOF that the CCCP are simply wrong and that the efforts of the CCCP are designed to strangle the last bits of life out free-market capitalism and go full-bore toward an absolute central-planning system (global, mind you).
The CCCP supporters always point to “the science” and tell us that “the science” is not wrong…just misrepresented, misinterpreted, mislabeled, misspelled, misplaced, mismatched, misunderstood, misaligned, missing, or just missed it. It always seems as if the CCCP “science” isn’t quite as exact as REAL science is supposed to be. It is here, where CCCP “science” meets REAL science, that the truth of this supposed anthropogenic climate change is found. A truth that is irrefutable!
Enter Charles Manson…a certifiable lunatic (by ANY definition employing virtually ANY standard) who has been scientifically tested probably more than any single human on this thriving planet. Each and every scientific test performed on Charlie return the same result: He has absolutely NO connection to reality. Every rambling moment, every twisted thought, every conclusion, and every decision this dude makes originates from LALA-Land. Ladies and Gentlemen, policy-makers, policy-advisors, legislators, global delegates, citizens of this big blue ball…if Charles Manson says it is so…that is PROOF that it can’t be so!
In this obscure interview of Charles Manson hides the key to FREEDOM…Freedom from government interventions and usurpations of power. Freedom to once again let people produce in ways the market dictates, not government. Ole crazy Charlie has finally (though unknowingly) done a good deed. By siding with the CCCP he has provided the evidence and revealed the truth — only lunatics with a bastardized view of reality can hold the ”science” of the CCCP as plausible. I knew those eyes pierced more than the souls of his cult followers…look into the eyes of the CCCP and you see shades of Charlie — the need to CONTROL!
(NOTE: Approximately 6 hrs after the interview article was published at Daily Mail, the title changed to: “Global Warming Must be True, Charles Manson Believes It…” You can read my original remarks on this at http://www.facebook.com/update_security_info.php?wizard=1#!/howardhouchen/posts/206710839351330?notif_t=like and you be the judge).

Howard HouchenIn early 2010 Barack Obama’s handlers developed an analogy for him to splash about the airwaves and repeat at public appearances (over, and over, and over, and over, and over again). The analogy was one of Republicans driving a car (the U.S. economy) into a ditch (deep recession) and the Obama Rescue Crew is called in to salvage the car and get it moving along the road to recovery. As the story goes, the self-proclaimed Master Mechanic Obama and his Pit Crew (the Lackluster-Lackeys), successfully dislodge the car (the U.S. Economy) from the pit of despair (recession) and put it back on track only to have the Republicans ask for the keys back. Pit-Boss Obama then tells us that “you” can’t have the keys back. Hmmm… It has always been my contention that what THESE folks did to THAT car while it was at its most vulnerable could more readily be described as “vehicular stripping” and that the man in charge should be known as “Chop-Shop Barack” and that THOSE keys were never HIS in the first place. Guess what? The election results of Nov. 2, 2010 proved me, and tens of millions of American citizens, RIGHT! Those keys are OURS and it is you, Chop-Shop Barack, who possesses no authority whatsoever to decide who gets the keys to OUR economy…They belong to We, the People! With a mighty heave and a resounding opening salvo, the citizens of these United States of America firmly rejected the policies of a central-planning “Ruling-Class” who incorrectly believed they were the “Keepers of the Keys”. With this clear and concise action, Washington can no longer mistake our wishes. Yes, we have our keys…BUT…we must secure them with vigilance and dedication to our stated principles. We must never again allow citizen non-participation in this great American experiment in self-government to empower those in legislative positions whose philosophies run counter to OUR founding principles. We ALL must stay engaged and steer OUR course. As citizens, we are the “Keepers of the Keys” and with this comes the responsibility of ensuring our drivers steer a straight course, a course we have set for them. Any deviation from the course that leads to greater freedoms, less government interference, lower taxes, more economic freedom, and security in our blessing of individual liberty must be met with swift and clear action on our part. Yes, we have our keys but what we do with them from this point forward will be the defining characteristic of this movement to restore America to the mantle of history’s greatest and lasting achievements.
